Meanwhile, Sunny 106 continues to promote Police Paw-sativity with DuBois City Police K-9, Ace!
The Belgian Malinois, a breed commonly used by police and military, was purchased from Phillips Command Dogs in Olean, New York. The company will train both Ace and his handler, Officer Zayne Rhed, in tracking and narcotics apprehension. DuBois City Police Chief Blaine Clark says the dog will be used the majority of the time to help fight the drug epidemic. Officer Rhed works alongside the dog, and the K9 will stay at Rhed’s house when he’s not working. Together, they do traffic stops, drug busts, and even visit the local schools.
Listen our interview with Chief Clark and Officer Rhed below!
The cost for the K9 police dog, its training, modifications to a dog-customized patrol car, the dog’s protective Kevlar jacket, food and medical costs should come to around $70,000, which was donated by individuals, fundraisers, and businesses in our community. Interested in assisting in Ace’s expenses? Drop-off or mail in a donation to the DuBois City Building at 16 West Scribner Avenue, DuBois PA 15801
